otus* at uhub? port ?
otusdriver supports USB 2.0 wireless network devices based on Atheros Communications AR9001U chipset.
The AR9001U chipset is made of an AR9170 MAC/Baseband and an AR9101 (1T2R), AR9102 (2T2R) or AR9104 (dual-band 2T2R) Radio.
These are the modes the
otus driver can
otus driver can be configured to use
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK). WPA is the current encryption standard for wireless networks. It
is strongly recommended that WEP not be used as the sole mechanism to secure
wireless communication, due to serious weaknesses in it.
Although these firmware files are freely redistributable, their usage is restricted. A prepackaged version of the firmware can be installed using fw_update(1).
# ifconfig otus0 scan
The following hostname.if(5) example configures otus0 to join network “mynwid”, using WPA key “mywpakey”, obtaining an IP address using DHCP:
nwid mynwid wpakey mywpakey dhcp
otusdriver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.6.
otusdriver was written by Damien Bergamini <email@example.com> based on source code licensed under the ISC released in 2008 by Atheros Communications for Linux.
otus driver does not support any of
the 802.11n capabilities offered by the AR9001U chipset. Additional work is
required in ieee80211(9) before those
features can be supported.
This driver does not support powersave mode.
